The Miracle Tonic & Tips for Staying Well

November 19, 2018

Yes, it's cold & flu season again. Time to be diligent about our self maintenance - this means paying attention to what we are putting into our bodies, how much rest we are getting, engaging in our self-care rituals, wearing layers for temperature adjustments through the day, & managing our stress level.  All of these things impact the immune system.

For me personally, one of the primary things at this time of year is avoiding dairy & wheat which are both mucus-producing in my body.  Mucus invites a cold to settle into my head & or lungs.  This is the time to be mindful, more than usual, of eating nourishing foods - homemade soups, plenty of fresh fruit & vegetables, teas, & natural sweeteners like honey or maple syrup, accompanied by herbal medicine & extra vitamins & herbal supplements for prevention.  White/processed sugar is to be avoided as it really breaks down the immune system. 

In the event that I start to feel something coming on - which sometimes can manifest as allergy symptoms - there is a very effective & simple apple cider vinegar & honey 'tonic' that I recommend to all my friends. It's very easy to make & effective for a number or ailments. I call it the Miracle Tonic.


In a 32-oz water bottle (preferably), cover the bottom of the bottle with organic apple cider vinegar, about an 1/8 inch deep. Add equal amount or slightly more of honey (local is best, pourable raw is even better). Fill half way with water & shake until the honey totally dissolves. Then add the rest of the water. Sip throughout the day or drink over the course of an hour, whichever works for you. If I am having an allergy attack, this typically nips it in the bud in 5 minutes or less.


Other things that can be treated with this tonic: colds, indigestion, stomach aches, yeast infections, & more. It's a great tool for fasting or weight loss.  Any excess of rich, fatty foods, processed foods, & animal products should be avoided more than usual at this time.
